Red himself has said they didnt really understand the value of what Bill did back then. Players did im sure. They voted him MVP in one season. Players voted on MVP back then(the two Bobs got the other 3 in that 4 year period). Fans were slow to see his impact though.

If its by my opinion Russell was the GOAT from his rookie year till Wilts but going by what they people probably thought? It may have been Cousy getting the love after Petitt and not Bill.

Bill Russell was MVP his second season (1957-58). He was MVP 4 times after that (while Chamberlain was playing). But, yeah, the players voted. People noticed who the MVP was, though.

And I though Bill Russell was paid higher than Cousy rather quickly. His rookie season I think he was paid more per game than Cousy. I'm not too sure between that and the 100,001. Auerbach knew who was more important.

A lot of fans and media were racists, so that explains much of the Cousy/Pettit over Russell sentiment.

I was going by something Wilt mentioned in a book. He said he got to the league and he was told hed have to take less money than the 65K a year cousy and Pettit got since they were proven great players and made more than anyone in the league. He didnt say what Bill made just that his team said he couldnt be paid like the two Bobs who were tied for best paid in the league.

Any stars without good supporting cast is still ****. :) Look at Kobe. He brought his whole team to playoffs by himself. Where's the thanks to that?:rollingeyes:

90's - Jordan

20's - Kobe/SHAQ

10's - Wade / Lebron??? Who knows...

The 80's and 00's need a coin flip, because both are way too close to make a definite decision

explain how is it even close between shaq and kobe?
especially during their 3peak years, shaq was clearly the most dominant play in the league, kobe was the second guy
and did you flip a coin between jordan and pippen?

if you say russel for the 50's era, wilt for the 60's era, kareem for the 70's era, bird + magic for the 80's era, jordan for the 90's era, then id say it would probably be duncan for the 00's era, Shaq is sort of stuck between the 90's and 00's, duncan has 2 MVP's, 3 Rings, all NBA and defensive team every year of the 00's, he probably deserves this title...

The stats GOAT is easily MJ. Shaq has a case also.

Jordan's 87' season - 37.1 ppg

Unheard of. 37.1 ppg in the late 80's? That's so ridiculous you can't put it into words.

Jordan's 89' season - 32.5 ppg 8.0 apg 8.0 rbg

Maybe even more impressive than his 87' season.


yeah it's hard to do it in the 80s... but if someone was to compare stats only... regardless of the eras... teams... etc... Wilt will absolutely dominate MJ... 20+/20+/8+ is sick! so is 50ppg...

You are out of your mind if you don't think a serious argument can be made as to why Kobe is the best player of this era.

Kobe is top 3 of this era, but not the best. That would be Shaq/Duncan in whatever order. Kobe has only had a legit case as the best player in the league the last two seasons, and even that is in dispute, with many picking Duncan or Lebron. I'm not sure if Kobe will ever really be the defining star of a generation, because from Shaq it went to Duncan, and TD looks to have at least a few more good years in him. At that point Kobe will be 31-32 and Lebron/Wade etc. will be a lot better than they are currently and making playoff noise. They might take the mantle from Duncan.


But if you're suggesting that Kobe is or should be ranked ahead of Duncan and Shaq for this era (2000-present), then you're insane.

Shaq is the only player of this era that could be argued as better than Kobe. Duncan doesn't even come close.

Wake up boy!
you are really delusional.

without Shaq, Kobe's playoff records are 4wins-8loss
Duncan's playoff records (since 2003) are 61wins-29loss.

Your argument is so stupid. "Let's see what he can do without help."

In that case, let's see what Duncan and Shaq do with NDBL supporting casts.

huh?

Huh?
your EXCUSEs are really pathetic
Give Duncan Lamar Odom.
Duncan will make Odom live up to his hype.
Even Quame will play his role to his first championship.

Pre-1950 - a lot of irrelevant white stiffs

early 1960's - George Mikan

late 1960's - Bill Russell

1970's - Wilt Chamberlain

1980's - Kareem Abdul Jabbar

1990's - Michael Jordan

nobody has unseated MJ as the GOAT........yet
